Hello my fellow bloggers "wishes to all in this upcoming new year"

I hope you are all in good health and plentiful of blessings, my best wishes to all in this upcoming new year. However, I cannot say that I am in the same happy mood; time is running out for me, and the possibility of a dream turned into a nightmare.

For those that did not have a chance to read my first blogs, and do not have any idea what I am talking about, I will put a little reminder here. The reason of this blog originally intended to be not only for expressing myself, but to let you know our lives, and what could become if we do not accomplish the goal for me to gain residents in United States.

I ask to you all to spread the word about my blog with other bloggers, friends, and family members. However, I will sadly have to say, that by the end of the year I will only have five more months to be in the United States legally with my tourist visa, after that I do not know what is going to happen to me.

It's clear to me that my wife is very worry about it, but we don't have the resources to pull it out, I did ask Santa Claus to bring at least a small envelope with the money we need to do these process of immigration, in order for me to be able to work and help my wife.

However, apparently, Mr. Claus did not receive my letter on the North Pole, and unfortunately, he do not have access to any computers either. If he does, he probably will read my blog. Moreover, he could become a blogger as well.

Let's be and get serious, at least for just a moment, recently we almost lost our apartment we owe rent, “late Charges” electric, cable, to make things worse, our car is acting up. We have a loan on the title of the car, due to unexpected medical bills, when my wife starts having problems with her leg. However, when we were trying to pay the loan back in full we were short but just a couple hundreds. The car needed the fuel pump and we have to ask for another extension of the loan to get it done and fixed, leaving us with no money, and with a debt.

For some strange reason every single time, we tried to get ourselves ahead in all the money compromises we have, something else happen. Even with the help of many angels and all the prayers, something seems against us.

A single paycheck as you probably know by now, is not cutting it at all, I try putting some ads on Craig list offering my service as a Spanish tutor for the surrounding universities or schools closed by, however for some strange reason , no hits on it just a couple of people trying to scam me. I had another ad on Craig list offering my service as a repairperson, but nothing.

My family in Mexico does not have any possibility to help us out; especially having in consideration the economy is not good over there as well. Her family can not help either due to medical reasons her mom is not in the best shape and her dad a few months back had a fall and now he suffer a few grammas seizures and he is dedicated of health. That is why I plead to you to let others know about this blog, the donation button, is not a bogus thing. Originally, I open my PayPal account to try to make business selling jewelry that I make, either through eBay or through any other means, but not luck. In addition, so that is the reason I have this PayPal account on the 1st Pl. and I thought that well, maybe I could use it to ask for donations to help us out with in the process of immigration, but again no luck.

Probably I sound like an old record, that repeats repeatedly the same part of the song, but come on people, I am desperate and I do not know what else to. With my wife in not such good health, blood pressure going up and down, not been able to pay for medication for her, with her trying to find another job, on the worst recession ever, we pray That at least pays a little better than the one that she is right now.

Believe me I do want my wife to spend the rest of my life with, but if I do not start helping her soon she is going to have a stroke, I know the economy is not the best, and I may be asking too much for you to help. Making a small donation whatever is in your possibilities, not breaking the bank in the process.

So if you know anybody that would be able to help me accomplishing or getting the money needed for the process of immigration please do so.

I thank you all of you that at this point in time are following me, and given me their moral support, Ms. Burb, Jeff, Rhiannon Raven, the caffeinated globe, Susan, Dr. T., sahasrara, corve, plainolebob, coltin 1948, stitch_up 1774, Courtenay, Jenno, Jeannette, and arvella bagwell. If By any means I ask you again to promote and mention my blog to other bloggers, is because I am desperate. I need to collect I at least the total of $1750.00 to be able to send the papers and money orders needed for the immigration process, I guarantee that anyone that help in this process I will keep you posted of how much is needed to reach that amount, or if it was reached already the goal.

I am a very honest type of person, and probably by saying, it does not mean anything to all of you. However, I really want to assure you that once I became a resident and I start working legally and in regular basis. I will keep your e-mail address and I will do my best to keep you posted and repay you, or if you wish, I will help others the same way you help me.


  1. Hi there... best wishes for your and your family. This too shall pass!

    Wishing you all the best and happy to help.

  2. What a touching story and horrible predicament! I wish you all the best in the upcoming year, and lots of luck with your imigration process.
    I will definitely be stopping by to check for updates, and I hope your wife's health starts improving soon.
    Merry Belated Christmas and best wishes for a joyous New Year, whatever may come.

  3. Armando,

    I will forward your blog and a short testimonial pleading my facebookies on your behalf. I sincerely hope it helps as I'm unable to personally support the cause at the moment - but will do more than just consider doing so when we are also more able.

    Feliz navidad y prospero ano y felizidad

    (Can't find the special characters... but you know what I mean)


  4. I honestly wish I could personally do something to help you, Armando! I unfortunately cannot, as I'm also struggling to pay the bills! I have student loans, drunk-driving fines, cell phone bills, etc. This economy is horrible, isn't it?

    I wish you the best of luck, though, and hope for your sake (and your wife's!) that everything will work out for the best. Keep your head held high and thank you for reading my blog!

    -- Courtenay --

  5. Wishing you the best of luck. We will keep you in our thoughts.
